#SundayGunday: Steyr Zephyr II

by
posted on August 12, 2018

The Steyr Zephyr II rimfire is a rebirth of the original and much admired Zephyr, which the company offered in the 1950s and '60s. It features a five-round detachable box magazine, cold-hammer-forged barrel and a classic European walnut stock with a Bavarian cheek piece and fish-scale pattern checkering. Weighing less than 6 pounds, the rifle is light enough for carrying on long still-hunts through the hardwoods, but has enough weight in the right places to help you hold it steady for a tight shot at 35 yards. We believe there is still a great need today for classy rimfires that will handily collect squirrels and other small game—and be cherished for generations. Thankfully that's exactly what hunters get with the Steyr Zephyr II. Learn more about it in the video embedded above, hosted by Executive Editor Adam Heggenstaller. MSRP: $995; steyrarms.com.
